IOptic liquid for cleaning digital camera sensors


Mark Peters : 2005-06-10 17:45:00
IOptic liquid for cleaning digital camera sensors : IOptic, the first totally safe liquid for cleaning digital camera sensors, lenses and optical surfaces, is now available from Intemos website. Unlike other sensor cleaning liquids, IOptic, is non flammable, non toxic and is completely travel safe. Because it is not alcohol based, IOptic will not evaporate in the bottle as other cleaners do, and so lasts much longer. Formulated to remove sticky particles, such as pollen or pollution from the sensor, IOptic can be used in conjunction with other Intemos’s DSLRClean swabs. "Our DSLR swabs will remove most types of dust that accumulate on a digital camera sensor, but sometimes a cleaning solution is required to thoroughly clean it"

Canon DIGIC II Image processor introduction


Mark Peters : 2005-02-17 12:00:00
Canon DIGIC II Image processor introduction: The Canon EOS 350D Digital features Canon's DIGIC II processor, proven in Canon's pro-series EOS-1Ds Mark II and EOS-1D Mark II cameras. DIGIC II delivers superb image quality, responsive camera performance, faster AF, faster continuous shooting and extended battery life. "There are three critical stages affecting digital image quality," says Brian Worley, Camera Product Manager, Canon Europe. "First the lens determines how the image is transmitted on to the sensor. Then the sensor determines how accurately the light is converted to electrical signals. The third and final stage is the image processor, which dictates how well the signals from the sensor are translated into a viewable image.


Canon EOS 350D | Rebel XT CMOS sensor explanation


Mark Peters : 2005-02-17 12:00:00
Canon EOS 350D CMOS sensor explanation : The Canon EOS 350D | Rebel XT features a new CMOS sensor designed and built in-house by Canon. A number of innovations proven in Canon's professional series D-SLR cameras help to ensure the sensor’s image quality is second to none. Canon's history with sensor development stretches back to 1987, when it began using the BASIS sensor for its auto focus systems. Continued R&D in the field led to the 2000 release of the Canon EOS D30: the first commercialisation of CMOS for full colour image capture. Encouraged by the camera's success, Canon continued to refine and develop the renegade technology. CMOS now forms the basis for the world's most popular digital SLR cameras.


Panasonic 2.0 mju MOS image sensor


Dennis Hissink : 2005-02-09 10:09:50
Panasonic 2.0 mju MOS image sensor : Panasonic and the leading brand by which Matsushita Electric Industrial CO, the Ltd. is known, announced the development of the world's smallest image sensor. The revolutionary MOS image sensor has only 2.0x2.0 ? M pixels which is now officially the world's smallest sensor, where the previous standard was 3.1 ? M. Matsushita's technological breakthrough allows two million pixels on a 1/4-inch MOS sensor instead of one million. This size reduction was also achieved without sacrificing sensitivity by minimizing the number of transistors required for each pixel. Details of the sensor will be presented at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference held in San Francisco during February 6 - 10.
